The One Cooper Campus initiated a single stream recycling program in January. Reviewing the numbers for the first two quarters, it is clear that Cooper has begun to make an overall improvement in managing its waste.
Cooper is continuing the process of going green. Various departments within the hospital are taking strides to become as sustainable and environmentally conscious as possible, and each hospital employee and visitor can help. Fran Cassidy and the Food and Nutrition Department have been environmentally friendly for years: purchasing locally grown produce, fair-trade coffee, cage-free eggs, and providing a menu with the cafeteria is giving discounts for use of reusable coffee cups, and has even begun investigating methods of composting for organic food waste.
